           Summary: Setting WINEPATH has no effect.
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kernel32
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: aziz.koeksal at gmail.com

I have also browsed the source code, and found the following identifiers that
should be of interest:


I could help debugging this, but only if someone guided me through setting up
everything that is required to debug wine in a graphical and sane environment.
